Anglican Schools provide young people with opportunities to develop an understanding of the beliefs and practices of the Anglican Church through religious education programs, worship, and community service programs.
Religious education programs encourage young people to think, question, challenge, investigate and reflect in their guided search for spiritual meaning and truth. Through these classes, young people may learn and make informed decisions about matters of personal faith and ethical behaviour.
Worship in the Anglican tradition provides young people with opportunities to develop and express their spiritual nature. Bible reading, music, prayer, the Eucharist, reflection and the Arts form important parts of liturgies in Anglican schools.
Community service programs through Anglican agencies and other bodies enable young people to engage in Christian ministry and service to others, especially those in need. Anglican schools provide the whole school community; young people, staff, and parents with an environment in which all members may grow in faith.
Anglican schools are active participants in the mission of the Church, encouraging young people to consider a personal response to the Christian faith, and to develop an appreciation of other religious traditions.

Western Australian Anglican schools are diverse in nature and character, as is the Anglican Church itself. From long established to new; boys, girls or co-educational; day or boarding; and at various tuition fee accessibility ranges, Anglican education is the second largest grouping of non -government schools in Western Australia.
